A visit to the Bourse de Commerce Pinault Foundation to view the Mike Kelley retrospective 

Our Master of Arts in Managing Art & Cultural Heritage in Global Markets (MAGMa) students recently visited the Mike Kelley retrospective at the Bourse de Commerce - Pinault Foundation.

This retrospective, a homage to Kelley's profound impact on the art world, unveiled a comprehensive array of his work, defying conventional classification at every turn. From his early pieces to his later creations, each artwork served as a testament to Kelley's fearless exploration of themes and mediums.


The exhibition is curated in collaboration with esteemed institutions such as the Tate Modern in London, K21 – Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen in Düsseldorf, and the Moderna Museet in Stockholm.. It provided our Master of Arts in Managing Art & Cultural Heritage in Global Markets (MAGMa) students with an unparalleled opportunity to immerse themselves in Kelley's multifaceted artistic vision, guided by their professors Adriana Turpin and Carolina Ariza. 

As the students delved into Kelley's oeuvre, they encountered a diverse array of artworks that challenged preconceptions and invited introspection. From thought-provoking installations to intricately crafted sculptures, each piece offered a glimpse into Kelley's relentless pursuit of artistic expression.

Moreover, the retrospective served as a springboard for discussions on the intersection of art and commerce, shedding light on the complexities of managing cultural heritage in today's global markets.

For MAGMa students, it was not merely a journey through art but also a reflection on the evolving role of cultural institutions in shaping contemporary discourse.
